    I've been on the TFW2005 boards for a while now, I'm not much of a poster here but I am over at Ozformers in Australia...but thought I'd post this here....

    I've done some small projects, IE minor mods and repaints for a while and thought it was about time I shared them here as I tend to get much of my inspiration from here....Just beware I'm not much of a fine detailer, I'm great with a spray can not so much with a brush...so please be gentle with the criticisms...Sorry for the quality of some of the pictures, I had to downsize some of them and now some of them look average...

    Bounty Hunter Optimus Prime...
    Hes has become a multi-dimensional bounty hunter after the fall of his own dimension due to Megatron attempting to create a space bridge using dark energon.The cascade effect of the accident destroyed Megatron but in the process sent a ripple effect outward from the epicentre that destroyed the universe.
    Optimus Prime was saved by the energy and stored wisdom of the Matrix. The Matrix is now fused to his spark,it has given him immense power to travel between dimensions at will,also the ability to attach weapons and shields to his forearms through docking ports, also it increases the strength of any weapons he attaches to these ports and the ability to store his weapons in a small dimensional pocket that he can open at will.His 2 main weapons of choice now are 2 hand guns he has stored on his back and are constantly being recharged by his spark-matrix. His soul purpose of living is now to stop other Megatrons and villains from endangering their own dimensions, either by reasoning with them or by obliterating them from that reality....

    While Megatron admires his new gun, he has no idea of the fate that awaits him....[​IMG]

    Nightshade...
    Basic repaint of Sideswipe..I decided to paint this one after I damaged him when transforming him and it gave me an excuse to buy a second one...

    This one bugged me for some time,the Transmetal Cheetor has always been one of my favourite beastwars toys but the one thing that bugged me the most are the mold was the lack of movement in the front legs. I got bored last night and 2 hours later this is what I came up with..

    First of I had to figure out what to use for the joints, nearly went with a lego ball joint but as I was rummaging through my toy box and remembered i had a junker Optimus Primal and realised he had a wonderful set of hip joints, so he got pulled apart and now Cheetor now has a lovely set of front shoulder joints, He is a little bit wider across his shoulders now but it doesn't look out of place in either mode, if any thing it improves his look...

    Last but not least is a slightly modified Skyfire.I was never that keen on the heavy back pack i decided to give him a lighter pack without all the heavy weaponry and its a little closer to his original G1 counter part. As we all know Skyfire is a scientist not a warrior...plus he has the leg mods to make him taller...

    ;)  just trying to be helpful, and the more that people try to help, the better it is for the community!


    What was the damage to SS that caused you to repaint him(Beautiful repaint though)?

    Oh and dont feel bad about the detail work, I'm not very good at it.

    Thanks for the compliments guys....

    When I was first transforming him, i tried to force something and I ended up breaking the tips off the roof section where it meets the rear window, if you look closely you can see it in the pics, you can see in the cad mode only though..

    That's just due to the weight and taxes... so he couldn't reallly do anything about it :( 

    guess I'll have to wait an eternity for those small @$$ parts...

    But will not give up hope for the project though ;)
